The M3 Pro chip is faster than the M2 Pro in unverified benchmark results

Apple’s new M3 Pro chip with a 12-core CPU offers only slightly faster CPU performance compared to the M2 Pro chips with a 12-core CPU. Geekbench 6 result Found today by Vadim YurievCo-host of YouTube channel Max Tech. This is only a key result, so additional results are needed to confirm accuracy.


Apple on Monday announced new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M3, M3 Pro and M3 Max chips. This criterion is the result Looks like For the 14-inch model based on the “Mac15,6” model identifier listed.

The result shows a single-core score of 3,035 for the M3 Pro and a multi-core score of 15,173. If these scores are accurate, the M3 Pro is 14% faster than the M2 Pro in terms of single-core performance, but only up to 6% faster. Based on multi-core performance For the most demanding tasks and workflows.

Both the M2 Pro and M3 Pro are equipped with up to a 12-core CPU, but the M3 Pro only has six high-performance cores and six performance cores, while the M2 Pro has eight high-performance cores and four performance cores. While the M3 Pro is manufactured with TSMC’s 3nm process, compared to 5nm for the M2 Pro, the chip’s performance gains are reduced due to having two fewer performance cores. The M3 Pro has 25% less memory bandwidth and one less GPU core compared to the M2 Pro.

By limiting the number of high-performance cores on the M3 Pro, Apple has created a greater contrast between the M3 Pro and the M3 Max, which has 12 high-performance cores. However, as a result, the M3 Pro is slightly faster than the M2 Pro.

Geekbench 6 results from earlier this week show the M3 Max is up to 45% faster than the M2 Max, while the standard M3 chip is up to 20% faster than the standard M2 chip, so the M3 Pro is the least improved chip in the series. Of course, the M3 Pro is still a significant upgrade for those coming from an Intel-based Mac. The M3 Pro is up to 20% faster than the M1 Pro chip, which is a nice improvement.

As always, benchmarks provide a useful reference point, but real-world performance may vary.

The new MacBook Pro models are available to order now, and the M3 and M3 Pro configurations will begin arriving to customers and launch in stores on Tuesday, November 7. M3 Max configurations will launch later in November.
